Beat'n My Games #1 Corpse Party

Corpse Party (PSP)

PSP version
Japanese Box Art
Original PC-98 version

One of my favorite video game genres are adventure games, such as the Ace Attorney series and the old Scumm games. I also love discovering obscure Japanese games so Corpse Party caught my eye when I first read about it in a Siliconera news article. Corpse Party is a horror themed adventure where you play as a group of students and their teacher who get trapped in a haunted elementary school. Can they survive?! The game was original developed by a doujin group called Team GrisGris for the PC-9801 using an old version of RPG Maker. Team GrisGris later remade Corpse Party in 2008 as Corpse Party: Blood Covered and the game was remade yet again for the PSP by 5pd, creators of Steins;Gate, as Corpse Party: Blood Covered:…Repeated Fear. This PSP remake is the version that XSEED recently released as a PSN only title for America. I purchased the game on day one thanks to the hype from Hardcore 101’s article on Japanese computer games witch called the game “brilliant and award-wining”, that award being the 1996 2nd ASCII Entertainment Software Contest, and from Tom, aka Wyrdwad, from XSEED. There are 5 chapters in Corpse Party with multiple endings. I am currently on chapter 4 and unless I get one of the bad endings I think I’ll be finishing this entry in my back log pretty quickly. Wish me luck and stay tuned for my thoughts on Corpse Party when I finish the game.
